Mia Couto

My Africa

From his singular perspective as a scientist and poet, a white man and an African, and a novelist in a society with a long oral tradition, the celebrated Mozambican author and biologist Mia Couto offers a ver personal look at the African continent. Often, the noise of current events keeps us from listening to what the African continent tells us in its own voice. It is a polyphonic story, with its diversities and conflicts. For Mia Couto, this multiplicity is a starting point. Drawing from it, as well as his own life experience, which combines scientific research, the literary calling and the struggle for his country's independence, he shares with us his particular vision of the African continent.
